We have been spending a lot of time in our garden of late. Tidying up and planting blooms and veggies to enjoy through the winter months. One of the many questions I get asked, is about my signs that I have scattered throughout our garden. So when the opportunity to jump on board a fun Trash to Treasure Outdoor Addition Party Hosted by the very sweet Kimm from Reinvented, I thought I would join in all the fun  and share my Simple Vintage Farmhouse Pallet Garden Signs. Who doesn’t love a good party right?

Join us as we share some fun Trash to Treasure Outdoor projects in a fun blog hop | www.raggedy-bits.com

Simple Vintage Farmhouse Pallet Garden Signs

It amazes me at how a bit of trash can be turned into a treasure. Just like this pallet that my hubby picked up off the side of the road!  He truly brings home the BEST treasures!!

  • Drop Saw
  • Picket Fence Fusion Mineral Paint

Step 1 –  If you don’t have any scrap pallet wood, see here for the best way to pull apart a pallet. To make these signs I had a few scrap pieces left over from my Pallet Bath Caddy project. So I was lucky that I didn’t have to cut any of the pieces down to size. This would be where if you wanted a particular size that you would use your drop saw to cut to the required size. Using your sander, sand back the pallet pieces until smooth.

Step 2 – Using your brush paint the pallet pieces. 2 coats should do the trick.
While you are waiting for the paint to dry, you can start designing your words that you would like on your sign. I like to use two different fonts to add some character to the signs. You can use word or publisher to make your signs. Just make sure that your words are wider than the pallet! The possibilities are endless!

Step 3 –  Once your paint is dry use your sander to distress to your liking. Then using your transfer paper trace on the words to your pallet piece. Grab your round brush and black paint and fill in your words. Let dry and then distress lightly. Wax to seal.

  2. Oh, I just love those signs! Perfect for the garden, or in the home. I just might make one myself for my garden.Thanks for the idea.
